One Million Apple Device ID's Leaked

The AntiSec hacker group has released one million Apple UDIDs (unique device identifiers) onto the web, a fraction of the 12 million UDID's they claim to have obtained from a compromised FBI employees laptop. This immediately raises the question "What the Aitch-Eee-Double-Hockey-Sticks was an FBI employee doing with 12 million Apple UDIDs in the first place"? But that's just me, I guess.

The released information was reportedly edited to not show names and cell numbers, where those were originally present. Not clear what can be done with this information, but anytime a unique identifier can be tied to an account or a person, that can't be good. Neither Apple nor the FBI are making any comment so far.
